Ontario Programs for Families Affected by Addiction
Ella* is a volatile poly substance abuser (including opiates). Her mother, Ruth*, has custody of her 3 kids. While Ruth is looking for treatment programs for Ella, her biggest challenge would be convincing her daughter that treatment is the best thing for her. We provided resources for available treatment program and outpatient offices in her area (London, Ontario) that also deal with affected family members and loved ones.
